I Need Thirst

I need thirst- 

An abundance of thirst for the most barren of days,

the driest of nights. 

Not the thirst that dries your throat, 

without that I can be;

but the thirst that keeps your soul progressing internally. 

A thirst that cannot be relieved by a swig, nor a sip; 

a thirst that strives to thrive and pushes me to make it. 

I need thirst.
